I have a set of 100 files in one folder named as: file_001.txt, file_002.txt ... file_100.txt.
I also have 100 folders named as: Folder_001, Folder_002 ... Folder_100.
I want to copy each file to the correspondent folder: file_001.txt to Folder_001, file_002.txt to Folder_002. Can anyone help me please?

check out dir and copyfile. My suggestion would be to create the lists of file and folders first, check them, then do something like this:
for ind=1:1%length(filenames)
copyfile(filenames,foldernames)
end
(once the first file copies correctly, change the loop to go over all files
